German civilians are forced to look at a display in the Buchenwald concentration camp of tattoos and a lampshade allegedly made from human remains.

The original caption reads: "...German civilians going through the concentration camp. On the table are the tattoos. Whenever anybody had a tattoo on him, they'd cut the skin out and treat it and then make lamp shades and things like that. You can see one lamp shade. The glass jar on the table has lungs in it. They also did a lot of experimenting on these slave laborers by injecting serums and diseases into them."
